Verdict

FIDDLERONTHEROOF (NAP) couldn’t match the pace of Edwardstone at Wincanton but this much stiffer track will play to his strengths and Colin Tizzard’s novice should recoup losses. Former pointer Timberman looked a nice prospect when chasing home stablemate Son Of Camas at Newbury last month and he’s preferred to the returning Daphne Du Clos, who also represents the Henderson yard. Warwick third Arrivederci is back over 2m having failed to stay at Chepstow but has some improving to do.
